When journalist Jake Wolsey stumbles upon a declassified file showing Winston Churchill's interest in the ancient Etruscan civilisation his curiosity brings peril in its wake. He soon attracts the unlikely attention of alluring archaeologist Florence Chung - and that of MI6. As the two are pursued across Europe and Africa in search of the Etruscans' sacred text, danger closes in and more questions than answers arise. Are there powers in the sky modern science has yet to understand? Could the ancients predict the future? And what really explains the rise of Rome, that of Nazi Germany, the ebb and flow of history itself? In a thrilling race against time and enemies known and unknown, Wolsey fears the very survival of the West may depend on his ability to stay one step ahead of his adversaries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This one unfolds against a broad canvas, the plot expertly controlled, pushing the envelope to the edge and beyond. There's everything I like: action, history, secrets, and conspiracies. You're going to like it too -- Steve Berry, author of The Templar Legacy
A cracking good read... a thriller injected with inside nowse as well as well-placed heart-attack inducing paranoia, appealing to all who like their adrenaline rushes fast, engrossing and, at times, bloody * Bookbag, Top Ten Thrillers of 2015 *
Channelling fantasy, science and even the beliefs of an ancient Italian tribe in a Dan Brown-style action adventur * Islington Gazette *
Sensational book. Blew me away. Devoured it in four sittings. Electric paced, action packed, full of fascinating historical facts. Reads like Indiana Jones for the modern age, taking you around the world and back again, dizzy from adventure * Tarn Richardson, author of The Damned *
Roller coaster ride with highly exciting passages. Will appeal to admirers of Robert Harris's zest for rewriting history and Dan Brown's page-turning energy. Splendid! * NetGalley review *
Comparable to Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code,Davey's thriller is a fascinating story filled with history's possibility * NewsOK *
